Sunday Afternoon

Well it is Sunday afternoon and I just felt like putting a few words on here or to be more precise, some pictures.
Yesterday we were invited to the 90th Birthday party of a lovely lady who is quite a character. She's seen off two husbands and now has got engaged to another very nice gentleman. So next year we will be going to her third wedding!!
Anyway I made her a card which she was thrilled with.

I have also been making lots of Christmas cards, I still have 11 birthdays to make cards for before Christmas, so I knew I had to get on top of the card makes, so here are just a few of them.

Unfortunately 5pm on a winter Sunday is not the best time to take pictures so they are not brilliant, though actually better than I thought they would be.
the left hand one I am particularly pleased with. Silver stamping pad rubbed over the inside of an embossing folder. emboss the card and just add the sentiment and the flowers. I've don't it in gold as well and it is amazing how classy they look.

 The red one with the Christmas tree sentiment is the same embossing folder without the addition of ink.

 And these two with very simple stamping just speak for themselves. The gold one I am particularly pleased with, I embossed the black card and then rubbed gold gilding wax over the surface.

 And this one was mounted on a small scrap of black and silver card, and I can't get any more of it which is a shame.

Well it is now dark and rather cold upstairs so I am going down to a nice warm fire and crumpets for tea.

Thank you for reading, if anyone does.
